    Presentation Title:

    The Financial Supply Chain: Collaborative Approaches to Working Capital Management

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Supply Chain Management is often said to be the management of three flows: materials, information and money. Collaboration among supply chain partners to optimise flows of materials and information have contributed to some major advancements over the last half century. Until recently, however, collaboration to improve financial flows has been neglected in both industry and academic research. The study makes a contribution to this underexplored area by seeking perspectives from financial services providers, manufacturing companies and logistics & SCM companies.
